Wm. Miller and G. W. Swetland had an experience Saturday that was out of the ordinary. They were up at Sawyer's dam and wanted to go home.

After various experiences with the float being carried by the swift current against trees, around eddies and over rapids they landed after about five hours near Longwood and made their way home on foot, satisfied for the present with that mode of traveling.
